The Little Flower

The Little Flower

Straight from the garden of the MIPS R4000 microprocessor series, we bring you an image of the first "Silicon Plant" that we have found on a computer chip. This little flower is (we are told by Larry Johnson) the creation of Leilani Tamura, a circuit designer on the R4000. The flower is accompanied by the initials (or letters) L.E.I., which is probably Leilani's nickname. If you are interested in flowers, check out Betty's Garden to see how she grows flowers.
